Glittering Starling - a Common Starling



We went to Jodhpur for our nation conference of Anatomy. Whenever we went to new place to visit. We tried to meet few birder their so we can meet more people and can do birding also. This time we met the Pranjal J. Saikia at Jodhpur. A excellent birder and good person. We went for birding nearby to Jodhpur and what we get is Common Starling. One of my favorite birds to click due to its glittering color. We are luck to sight starling in sunlight so its true color can see.
Starlings are chunky and blackbird-sized, but with short tails and long, slender beaks. In flight their wings are short and pointed, making them look rather like small, four-pointed stars (and giving them their name).
